Weight Loss Q & A

What kind of weight loss services are available?

Weight loss services at RescueMD are customized for every patient. When you visit with one of our weight loss specialists, you'll discuss your weight history, previous diets, and your current health issues. This gives them the information they need to customize an effective medical weight loss plan for you. 

Your weight loss program may include:

  • Medical Weight Management
  • Nutrition for Weight Loss and Registered Dietitian Services
  • RMR Testing
  • BIA Testing
  • GLP 1 Medications
  • Personal Training

Some of these services are covered by insurance depending on your pre-existing conditions or symptoms. 

What is the secret to successful weight loss?

Weight loss success is possible if you avoid thinking short-term. Successful long-term weight loss requires a whole new approach to eating and lifestyle. 

Extreme diets, particularly those that restrict entire food groups for long periods of time, aren't likely to do anything other than make you crave the foods that you're denied. As soon as you transition back to regular eating habits, you may be prone to binges and overeating those previously prohibited foods. 

A balanced approach, one that controls calories and fat but still includes all the foods you need to be healthy, will always give you the best long-term results. Your weight loss specialist at RescueMD will give you the dietary guidelines you need to put this change into action.

Often, weight loss success means learning to make smart swaps like choosing fruit over a cookie or a lean protein source over a fatty one. 

How can losing weight benefit my overall health?

Weight loss can do more than just improve your appearance — it can also enhance your overall health in a variety of ways, including:

  • Lower blood pressure
  • Increased energy
  • More restful sleep
  • Reduced risk of diabetes
  • Reduced risk of heart disease

With a medical weight loss program, you can get a fresh look and a fresh lease on your health, too.

We are proud to offer these services to our patients residing in Allen, Frisco, McKinney, Plano, Dallas, and the surrounding areas. We also accept patients nationwide via televisit.
